I like data. I am definitely a numbers person. I currently am 2 sizes smaller and 12 pounds less than when I started the pregnancy journey. I was a size 4 or 28 prior and now I am a 0/1 or 26 (depending on where I get my clothes). I am sharing this data to prove it is do-able. You CAN make a decision to do something and do it. You can lose the pregnancy weight (or weight in general). Yes, those last pounds are definitely hard to lose...I won't deny that...What makes it the hardest is the juggling of your many duties, including but not limited to: parenting, working, taking care of the house and family, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, then trying to find time with your spouse and possibly have a social life...add fitness and the time for fitness to the mix... It is definitely a lot! But with self control, discipline and a little creativity with your time you too can find a balance and make it work! This is my 1 year progress...

This is not to say that I am perfect because I am not.This is not to say that I cannot improve because I can and will.
This is not to say that I am done because I have more goals.
This is to say that you CAN lose weight whether pregnancy related or not!
This is to say that you CAN be disciplined with your diet!
This is to say that you CAN make a change!
This is to say that you CAN find the time!
Do not get discouraged if you don't see a change immediately...it takes time!
If I can do it...so can you! Keep pushing forward and making new goals! :)
And while I am at it...here is a picture of my 1 year old (who is making me a sleep deprived mama these days)! :)
